    Name: Oregonian
    House: Slytherin
    Characters Used: Molly Weasley (snr), Ginny Weasley Potter, James Potter (jr)
    A/N:

    Sprigs of holly, mistletoe, and pine covered the table where Ginny was arranging the twigs into an artistic, old-fashioned wreath for a yuletide door decoration of aromatic green, white, and red. She and her mother had gone out into the frosty morning, with its fog and chilly breeze, to collect the makings of holiday decorations; the wreath was just the first of the garlands and swags that would be constructed with cutting and sticking charms.

    “Don’t let James grab the branches or put the berries in his mouth,” Molly warned, moving her little grandson away from the table. “They’re poisonous.”

    Name: Oregonian
    House: Slytherin
    Characters Used: Hannah, Neville
    A/N:

    Christmas was approaching, and it was time to bring the dedicated mulled-wine cauldrons out of storage, wash them scrupulously after their yearlong sojourn in white canvas bags in the storeroom, and heat up the simmering, fragrant brew for the customers who stopped into the Leaky Cauldron for a quick respite from an exhausting, exhilarating day of shopping in Diagon Alley. Hannah had many prized possessions at her pub; these cauldrons were among them, with their inseparable connection to the holiday season. And when the noisy crowds finally dispersed, how good to sit quietly with Neville and the warm, spicy wine.

    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans and a brief allusion to Severus at the end; plus, Lily's mother, but she isn't on our character list
    A/N: Wow!!!!! Has it really been 19 days????? Advent is almost over!


    Lily perked up from her seat on the couch, sniffing the air. “Oh, Mum, that smells wonderful! What is it?”

    “Mulled wine,” her mother replied, causing Lily’s shoulders to slump.

    “Why is it that all the things I can’t have smell good?” Lily asked.

    Her mum smiled. “I have mulled cider cooking, as well. Don’t worry, sweetheart. You’ll have something festive to drink.”

    “I suppose that’s okay,” Lily said. Then an idea struck her. “Could I take some cider with me now?”

    “Ah, to give to the little friend of yours?” her mum asked, seeing right through to Lily’s intentions.

    Name: Oregonian
    House: Slytherin
    Characters Used: Teddy Lupin, James Potter (jr), Louis Weasley
    A/N:

    Teddy had brought a Christmas songbook to the Burrow, along with his electronic keyboard, which his wife’s grandfather had re-engineered to be playable magically without electricity, for Teddy loved playing and had a wonderful singing voice.

    When Teddy began to play carols James drifted over to stand beside him and sing along, and soon Louis joined his brother-in-law, standing at his other shoulder, and the three masculine voices filled the room.

    “Dang, we’re good,” Teddy remarked when the carol was over. “We could call ourselves The Three Tenors.”

    “No, more like The Two Tenors and The Boy Soprano,” James jibed.

    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans, a mention of Severus; Lily's mother and Petunia
    A/N: Day Twenty! Only four more days!!!!! And then I can rearrange all of these drabbles and fit them into a story.



    “Mum, are we going to go caroling this year?” Lily asked, sipping some mulled cider.

    “I think we might, but with the party and everything else, it probably isn’t going to happen, Lily,” her mother replied, hanging some ornaments on the tree.

    “If we do, could I invite someone along? I’m not sure he would want to come, but maybe he might like it.”

    Her mother smiled knowingly. “You can invite him, but I would be wary of Petunia. You know those two don’t get along.”

    Lily pondered this before saying, “I’m sure Tuney wouldn’t want to come along anyway.”

    Thank you both.

    Sadly, the SDC was Pansy Parkinson.

    Thank you...

    SDC was Cho Chang. Personally I think she'd have been an excellent caroller.
